If you’re moving into a new apartment, especially if it’s your first, you may be particularly excited to decorate your bedroom to your ideal style. However, decorating your apartment requires you to keep a budget, and you can’t spend all of your money in one room. However, you do want your bedroom to be relaxing, inviting, and comfortable, so you don’t want to cut corners when decorating this room. In general, there are three recommended places in which to save money and three in which you can splurge when decorating your bedroom.
Splurge on Window Treatments
Because every window and room is different, you may want to spend a little more money on buying custom window treatments when decorating your bedroom. The cost required to purchase custom curtains or drapes with your preferred width and height may make this expense feel like a worthy investment when you can perfectly customize your sleeping habits and light exposure.
Save on Nightstands
Because nightstands are a heavy use item, they can be subject to a lot of wear and tear. Considering the vast array of affordable and attractive nightstand options, you shouldn’t go overboard when purchasing an item that will likely be worn down in a few years.
Splurge on Art
One good piece of art or decor can make your bedroom unique and elevate the style of the entire room without you having to buy every item at high-end prices. Additionally, art is an excellent investment as it can move with you if you change apartments. It can even move within your house if you decide you would rather have the piece of art hanging in your living room.
Save on Sheets
Luxury bedding can be quite nice, but if you are concerned about staying within your budget while decorating your bedroom, you can save money here. It is relatively easy to fake the look of a high-end bed while using inexpensive sheets that are just as attractive. If you find neutral bedding set to use as a base and then add blankets and pillow for accessories, your bed can easily look more expensive than it is.
Splurge on a Mattress Pad and Pillows
Comfort is always worth spending more money on, and these two mattress accessories are keys to comfortable rest. A mattress pad can add extra cushion to your mattress while helping your mattress last longer while investing in great pillows will help you get that essential good night’s sleep.
Save on Decorative Accessories
It’s best to keep unnecessary items to a minimum when decorating your bedroom. The bedroom should be a relaxing, tranquil space, and filling it up with too many accessories or furnishings can make it feel cluttered and overwhelming.
